These pillows were made at a Beginners Sewing Camp. Each camper was able to personalize their pillow with fabric selection, machine and hand stitching. This project is perfect for any beginner and will be a great addition to any rooms décor. The finished size of the pillow is 9" x 11"

Supplies Needed:

  • Background fabric 20" x 24"
  • Fat Quarter of 100% cotton fabric
  • Fusible Web 10" square
  • Thread
  • Embroidery Floss to coordinate with the monogram fabric
  • Fiber filling - Small package
  • Letter pattern (Print one from the computer using a font you like)

Step 1: Step 1 - Fabrics

The background fabric used is a Canvas Drop Cloth. The drop cloth was washed and dried to soften it slightly. The drop cloth provides a medium weight fabric for the body of the pillow. You can find these in various sizes. You get a lot of fabric for a reasonable price.

The monogram fabric is 100% cotton. You can find this fabric in the quilting section of most fabric stores. You can buy a "fat quarter" which will be more than enough for this project.

From the drop cloth cut 2 pieces measuring 10" x 12".

Cut a 10" square from the monogram fabric

Iron both pieces so they are crisp and flat
